The Derek Lovejoy Partnership has been appointed to design the public spaces at Esso Glen, the Land Securities redevelopment in the heart of Victoria in central London. DLP's proposals include a substantial sky garden and outdoor arena. New and improved pedestrian linkages are also planned. The new glass-clad buildings (above) at Esso Glen, designed by EPR Architects, will provide retail units and cafes at street level, with office accommodation on six to nine storeys above. The project involves the demolition of Esso House fronting Victoria Street and Glen House at the rear.
